Oh, how high would I climb mountains
If the mountains were where You hide
Oh, how far I’d scale the valleys
If You graced the other side

And, oh, how long have I chased rivers
From lowly seas to where they rise
Against the rush of grace descending
From the source of its supply

‘Cause in the highlands and the heartache
You’re neither more or less inclined
I would search and stop at nothing
You’re just not that hard to find

I will praise on the mountain
And I will praise you when the mountain is in my way
You’re the summit where my feet are
So I will praise You in the valleys all the same
No less God within the shadows
No less faithful when the night leads me astray
‘Cause You’re the heaven where my heart is
In the highlands and the heartache all the same
Oh

Oh, how far beneath Your glory
Does Your kindness extend apart
From where Your feet rest on the sunrise
To where You sweep the sinner’s past

And oh, how fast would You come running?
If just to shadow me through the night
Trace my steps through all my failure
And walk me out the other side

For who could dare ascend that mountain
That valleyed hill called Calvary
But for the one I call Good Shepherd
Who like a lamb was slain for me

Oh, I will praise You on the mountain
I will praise You when the mountains in my way
You’re the summit where my feet are
So I will praise you in the valley all the same
No less God within the shadows
And no less faithful when the night leads me astray
‘Cause You’re the heaven where my heart is
In the highlands and the heartache all the same
Oh, oh, oh

Whatever I walk through
Wherever I am
Your name can move mountains
Wherever I stand
And if ever I walk through
The valley of death
I’ll sing through the shadows
My song of ascent
Whatever I walk through
Wherever I am
Your Name can move mountains
Wherever I stand
And if ever I walk through
The valley of death
I’ll sing through the shadows
My song of ascentMy song of ascent
Oh, oh, oh (and sing it out)
My song of ascent
Oh, oh, oh

From the gravest of all valley
Come the pasture we call grace
A mighty river flowing upward
From a deep but empty grave

So I will praise You on the mountain
I will praise You when the mountains in my way
You’re the summit where my feet are
I will praise you in the valley all the same
No less God within the shadows
No less faithful when the night leads me astray
You’re the heaven where my heart is
In the highlands and the heartache all the same
